This photo taken on December 1, 2011 shows Marshall Islands law enforcement personnel on a longline fishing vessel sorting through hundreds of kilograms of confiscated shark fins, in the Marshall Islands territory's waters. The Marshall Islands has fined a Japanese-operated fishing vessel 125,000 USD for violating a ban on shark fishing, officials said, in the first levy of its kind in the territory's waters. The Marshall Islands Marine Resources Authority said the fine was the first imposed since the introduction of a ban on trading shark fins across its vast waters late last year.
